fall by the christina romer wayside. but i think that's why it's important as marcie wheeler noted today, that people who care about this commission, stay vocal and really engage and make sure they support warren because this only happened because the base made noise and she's only going to continue to have power if they continue to make noise. >> you have to give the president credit though, right? because he did pick her at least to start the agency. >> absolutely. he could be setting the ground work for a really wonderful, you know, opportunity for her to go in and really fashion this. in a functional way. and we hope that's what happens. i think the best chances of insuring that are if the people stay vocal about it and make sure they support her. >> on the next issue, the president goes the other way. oba obama's mocking the left. last night, he poked fun at the nay sayers at a fund raising event event in connecticut saying -- that's a good one. obama. the president is obviously frustrated with those who believed him. last month, robert gibbs came under fire for lashing out ag

. >> the driver of the 18-wheeler stuck his hand out the window, you know, help. and me and three or four other people went over and pried the door open and helped him get out. >> shepard: he is fine now, we're told. while that rescue was ongoing, forecasters were keeping an eye on the storm that eventually spawned more than a half dozen tornadoes. let's get to meteorologist dan henry of my fox 4. my fox dfw. one of those pushed into city. >> it sure did. touched down a mere three miles, shepard, from downtown class. and it only stayed on the ground about a half mile or so. now, this was a fairly strong tornado packing winds of about 115 miles per hour. had it stayed on the ground, just a few miles, it would have hit portions of what we call uptown dallas, just north of downtown and perhaps the park cities as well. so, we did have some damage from it, but it could have been much, much worse had it stayed on the ground just a few miles. >> shepard: as it turned out those twisters popped up while you were dealing with floodwaters it was a mess it? >> was one of the wildest it 4 hour periods you w
